Carmel Academy's fifth grade has come full circle. Last spring, as 4th graders, the students planted a plethora of vegetables, herbs and flowers in Carmel Academy’s organic garden as part of their life sciences curriculum. Now, as fifth graders, the same students are harvesting the fruits of their labor. The autumn garden is bursting with over 20 different fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers. Not only are the students continuing their life cycle learning, they are also using the organic produce as part of their health curriculum.
Carmel Is Thrilled To Welcome Back Veteran Early Childhood Educator Julie Thaler to Lead New Transitional Kindergarten Program
"What guides my approach to early childhood education is developing a relationship with each child, and embracing their individuality. It’s allowing my students to use all of their senses. It’s child led and driven by their desire to understand more. It trusts that each child is a capable learner and supports individual choices and higher order thinking. It’s about exploration and freedom of creativity. It allows students to accomplish goals in their own time, while respecting where they are developmentally. It understands the value of play. It’s unhurried and embraced. It’s being in the moment.”
Transitional kindergarten bridges preschool and kindergarten, and gives students a head start that will yield future academic success. Carmel’s program provides students with a strong foundation for success in elementary school. Our program’s project-based curriculum follows the standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and incorporates Bank Street and Reggio Emilia approaches to early childhood learning. Contact our Director of Admissions Daneet Brill to learn more about our newest addition to our early childhood education program.
